PeopleNet announced a major effort to serve French-speaking markets in North America.

PeopleNet BLU is now available in a French language version. An effort is under way to translate documents and adapt functionality for easy use by French-speaking drivers and fleet operators.

Richard Budzyn was appointed account manager of PeopleNet Canada. Budzyn, who is bi-lingual, will serve PeopleNet accounts in both English and French-speaking eastern Canada.

Budzyn comes to PeopleNet Canada after 13 years with Shaw Tracking, which represents Qualcomm products and services in Canada. Prior to Shaw Tracking, Budzyn worked for more than 15 years in trucking operations, administration and sales, with major truckload and LTL companies as well as specialized installation and commodity carriers.
